Donut worry be happy! Lady Voluptuous has recently released a new line of the amazing Lyra dress and I’m pretty dang excited. I absolutely love the Lyra dress style and I’ve reviewed it previously on my blog so when I saw the print ‘cute confectionery‘ I knew I had to have this dress. As luck would have it, when I commented on one of their stories I was asked if I’d like to collaborate and of course I said yes! If you’ve been following me awhile now you’ll know that I love Lady V London/Lady Voluptuous and have done for probably 3 years now and I feel very comfortable recommending their products to my audience – because they’re great. I own another Lyra dress in summer cherish which I reviewed with my first impressions as it was my first Lyra. All Lyra dresses are created equal – the prints just change and I’ll tell you what, my overly anxious mind really loves knowing that a product is going to have the same fit and it’s going to look just as good but in a different print – I know what works for my body and it gives me confidence in my online shopping!
Another week, another blog and with that another dress review!! Because dressing pin-up isn’t just a hobby, it’s a lifestyle. I’m always excited to introduce new pieces to my ever expanding wardrobe especially pieces from Dolly & Dotty! If you’re new here Dolly and Dotty is a fabulous brand from England that specializes in vintage inspired pieces (dresses, tops, skirts – the list goes on!) with a modern fit with sizes ranging from a UK size 6 -24! They have a large catalog of quirky, classic & fun prints at an affordable price and are of a high quality – trust me, I have four of their pieces now!!

Are you looking for a splash of colour in these dark, dull and wet days? Or something light and easy to wear in a heatwave ? I’m looking at you England! Whether it’s summer or winter I have the perfect dress for you. Love ur Look Clothing recently reached out to me asking if I would like one of their pieces and of course I reached back with open arms and utter delight! I have been a fan of Love ur Look Clothing for awhile with some of my favourite bloggers wearing their pieces (Curve Creation & Miss Hero Holliday) so to have one of their pieces in the flesh is incredibly exciting for me!

As you all know I love dresses so that must mean I’m back with another dress feature! With seasons changing and New Zealand transitioning from Autumn to Winter ( it’s officially winter but I’m still in denial) I’ve been looking at my wardrobe. Do I have much catered for these seasons? No, of course not but I’ll tell you what – don’t underestimate my ability to layer! One thing I have been looking at has to be colour palettes and for awhile now I have had a wee obsession with burgundy reds and forest greens so when Dolly & Dotty reached out to me I knew exactly what would fill the gap in my wardrobe!

Well, well, well… I’m back with another Lady V London dress because once again they have kicked it out of the park! If you haven’t been keeping up with me (for the past TWO years) you won’t know that I absolutely love Lady V London. I could go on and on about my love for them (and I will) but to get more of an idea of what Lady V London brings to the table you can check out my previous reviews of the Lyra Dress, Eloise Dress & the Butterfly Border Tea Dress. Lady V London is a brand I love working with but also a brand I actually shop with and wholeheartedly believe in the product, that’s why I get super excited when that dress arrives at my house – I know it’s going to be fantastic.
I’m not going to lie to y’all – I’m very short on time this week so I’m keeping it real simple & sweet! This week I’m bringing to you a cute outfit of the day also known as an OOTD post but with tons of photos and promises of a better post next week. What do you as a reader prefer; photo heavy posts or word heavy posts? Recipes or fashion? Please let me know down below! Continue reading “Outfit Of The Day – Purple & Pink!”→
Where do I even begin? The Pearl coat has got to be one of my favourite reproduction pieces I have ever come across. I lusted over it for 3 years and last year on Valentine’s Day my boyfriend surprised me with one (all of the boyfriend points to him) – I was in D-I-S-B-E-L-I-E-F. The pearl coat for a long time was this unattainable thing; a. I’m pretty sure there wasn’t anything like it on the market e.g the Hell Bunny coats that are very similar but more affordable didn’t exist, b. no one in New Zealand stocked it – like no one and lastly c. it was over $300 so if you got it you would be pinged with a customs fine! I genuinely believed I would never own one. Continue reading “The Vintage Pearl Textured Coat – Collectif Clothing – REVIEW”→
Well, y’all know I love some Lady V London! And this week I get the great privilege of showing you one of Lady V London’s Spring/Summer new releases. We are heading into our colder weather (Autumn for us New Zealanders) but I find pretty much all of Lady V’s dresses can be worn through all seasons – trust me, I do it! I personally only work with brands I 100% truly believe in and Lady V London is definitely one. I have loved Lady V London for years (possibly one of my longest loves in the vintage reproduction world). I own five dresses that I wear regularly; in fact, I consider them a staple in my wardrobe and I genuinely love their passion for great products, service & quality.
Do you ever get that feeling when you try on a dress and it’s like “the one”? Well, I have.
Recently Dolly and Dotty sent me the Lily Dress in white/purple/pink and I knew from the photos it was going to be good but I wasn’t sure if it was going to look good on me… until I tried on and I felt like Elizabeth Taylor. This is not a feeling I get often, I often feel quite bulky and very un-Elizabeth Taylor but there’s something about this dress.
It’s light, I think that’s what it is. It’s not harsh on the eyes; the floral print in it’s pinks, purples and greens lift the dress which almost gives it a 1940’s look but there’s still a modern twist on it.
